General surgery, the general surgical subspecialties, and prerequisite training.
Currently, several specialties (cardiothoracic, pediatric, and colorectal) require a full general surgery residency before specialty training.
Plastic surgery has, in essence, a de facto requirement since most residents have had at least 5 years of general surgery training before initiation of a plastic surgery residency.
Forces within both general surgery and plastic surgery will dictate that such a de facto requirement will not persist in the future.
The pressures that compel plastic surgery to modify the traditional role of general surgery as preparatory training for requisite or specialty residency training can be extended by analogy to the other specialties as well.
